Home Swap - Advanced Tips for Tour

by John Smith Owner at The Vacation Exchange

Travelers often talk about the importance of living like a local to enjoy a memorable vacation in a foreign land.

How is it possible, apart from a couple of tips that suggest you eat where the locals eat and visit crowded areas, and so on?

Thanks to home swap websites, it is possible. However, before we dig any deeper, it is imperative to know what home exchange is.

Home swap is a new trend in tourism, and the market has grown dramatically over the past decade. Also known as a home swap, home exchange is a mutual contract between two parties whereby they agree to exchange each other’s home for a set period.


Now, the million-dollar question, is house swapping vacations a better option than booking a hotel room? Let’s find out: 

1 The Freedom to Travel Light

The most significant benefit of opting for a home swap is that it presents you with the freedom to pack lightly.


Typically, family holidays are associated with big suitcases, travel bags, and other stuff that you have to carry everywhere. Sometimes, they’re unable to find the right accommodation that meets their family's needs.


However, these things are days of the past. With home swap options, each member of your family can enjoy a fully-equipped room with the most up-to-date amenities, such as LED TV’s, favorite foods, lovely sheets, and just about everything else. Not to mention, surfboards, bicycles, and all the other conveniences of home. So, opt for a home swap to discover the joys of traveling light and limitless fun.

2 Complete Peace of Mind

Since you’re going on a vacation to unhook yourself from all your daily stresses & worries, family vacations don't turn out as hoped. This starts with finding someone to look after your pet, asking the neighbor to keep an eye on your house, or watering your plants before you pack your bags. No need to deal with these hassles anymore.


Traveling while using the home exchange option comes with great peace of mind. You can trust your new guests to take care of your house while you are away at their place. This could mean some good news for your furry mate back home.

3 Travel as Long As You Want, No Restrictions Whatsoever

What makes home swapping stand out is the freedom it provides to have a vacation for as long as you want, even for several months (entire summer), which indeed is not possible with a hotel stay. Because with the latter, you’ll not only end up breaking your bank account but also have to worry about your home.

Let’s Put The Lid On

There are hundreds of home swapping websites out there, do comprehensive research to decide on the right one in line with your individualized goals and expectations.
